of the time that we have been studying neuroscience and biology. president obama announced a new step in that direction. the human brain initiative, which aims a combination of research from nih, nsf, darpa, private foundations, from companies working with the international community to try to figure out how the circuits in the brain work. that is an amazing frontier to competently -- to contemplate. we can take images of the whole like pet scans and mris scanned and ct scans, or the space in between, where the action happens, is out of reach. this is a long-term investment. we should be able to figure those things out. how do you process visual information? how do you lay down a memory and her cheery bit? -- and retrieve it? all of the brain illnesses that we know of, all of the fundamental information that we have of how the brain works is insufficient. host: we're going to focus more on cancer research, but this is a tweet from jim. the same amount on prostate cancer research as its brent -- spent on breast cancer? we invest heavily in prostate cancer research. we invest heavily in
was anthrax or some other device that was sent to president obama and to the mayor in new york city, mayor bloomberg, was really related to that particular issue. so again, i think we have to look at the broader picture, and the only issue of radicalizati radicalization. and it's true what you said about the individual who does not look at some approval by his peers or colleagues, has no constraints whatsoever. but that individual does not exist in a vacuum in terms of radicalization. i think dr. kumar mentioned the technology, the social media, for example, the internet and so forth. the inspiration that they had. so what i propose that we can discuss again is the only issue, how is the lone wolf being created? again, i indicated that in general the terrorists are not born but they are created. and again, we can condemn them as dostoevsky observed a long time ago, we can be against the evildoers, but we cannot understand their mind of the evildoer. this is a big part. we cannot understand the mind of the lone wolf. so again, do you want to respond to some of the comments, dr. kumar? >> an
president obama governed. it did it in a 7500-word print magazine story. it ran online on the new website. it was one of the most highly trafficked stories of the year. there were more than a million page views so far for the long magazine article. i think it's challenges a lot of those incorrect conventional wisdom about what people will and won't read line. i think it's the kind of ambition that we're aiming for. which is to say to breakthrough the clutter and recognize that you can live in the twitter news cycle but don't have to be a captive of it. good journalism tends to do very well both in the dwitter world and beyond. and i think, you know we're not looking to unleash a flood content. we understand we are all drowning in information. we're connected with "politico." we're a part of "politico," which every day as you know, is pumping out tons of stories and items and updates and videos and news letters inspect is a robust journalistic echo system that already exist. what is the mission of a new daily public
to update the book but cooking dishes for michele obama since this evening. american grow. we can get to that after the devotional. thank you for being here. so wonderful to see so many friends, old and new. like a family reunion. i am excited to share it this book with you. my wonderful wife, michele. [applause] >> we have been married precisely 82 days. you see this blow on my face, that is why. thank you so much for being here. when i started working for barack obama i had no idea i would be sending in a devotional every morning. i was a young kid from nashville, tenn. working on the 2008 campaign, in the senate office for couple years but didn't know him that well. i was doing out reach around a company like so many others including many folks that i see and privately i would pray for that young senator, that he would wake up every day and have a sense of purpose and the protected along the campaign trail, one of those moments of prayer, this nudge in my spirit, so many supports around him, policy advisers and political support, and wondered who was thinking about his soul, lookin
created this new law and also expanded the disclosure may be more frequent than they have to disclose their financial transactions and it was signed by president obama with great fanfare but then something unusual happened about nine months ago. they basically gutted the bill and for those of you who think that bipartisanship is dead in washington dc, the stock proves it's not. what basically happened is that in the house it passed on a voice vote with no deviate. harry reid did the same thing in the house and president obama quietly signed it and basically gutted of the law. the answer to the question is that very little has changed. i think they are aware now that more people are watching what they are doing so perhaps some of the more egregious stuff that we saw before is gone but it remains a problem. thank you, great question. >> my name is david cooper. i stumbled on your book one time and there's a couple of things that came to mind that were fascinated. one was the second tarp vote but failed in the house and the about these $110 million worth of bribes and 57 members swapped
on blackwater and especially in the new book. earlier on the panel you had suggested that possibly we're in the reason that we're in the state we are now with obama was basically naive. he had no military experience, no foreign policy experience. if you could speak to him in light of what snowden has revealed, what could be done? because to my light, he's about the best kind of we're going to get. another bush or cheney would be a disaster. so here's a guy, a constitutional lawyer, a liberal, a good man. what could he do now to really make transparent and stop some of these abuses as you see them? >> host: thank you, carl. >> guest: appreciate the question. first of all, i don't think -- and if i gave that impression, i didn't mean to -- i don't think that president obama was knew brief. i think he's an incredibly brilliant figure. in fact, when he was in the senate, i worked with his office at times journalistically on the blackwater issue, you know, because he has a young -- he as a young u.s. senator actually was pretty serious about that issue. so i don't think it's about naivete,
